The problem you are encountering is due to the fact that NetBios UDP
broadcasts are typically not forwarded through IP routers (including the
cipe VPN which is just a special type of router). Cisco routers can forward
UDP broadcasts using something called "ip helpers" but you have to be very
careful when configuring networks with multiple paths. It can lead to
broadcast storms.

The best solution is to employ the use of the WINS service on your NT PDC.
This would work well for you if you have an NT server but I'm not sure what
a good solution would be for sites without a server. If anyone knows of a
way to provide WINS without an NT server (short of using SAMBA) I would be
really interested in hearing about it. I think of I've heard of some VPN
products employing custom 'network neighborhood' proxies to resolve this

Subject: can cipe handle encap. win neigborhood?


I want to be able to view in network neigborhood, computers for a remote

Can you use cipe tunnels for NT authentication and browsing from LAN to
remote LAN?????

I have the tunnel established between two linux boxes and can ping all hosts
within each lan from both locations.

But I can seem to view computers through the network neigborhood I think due
to the fact that they are on different subnets
ie:  192.168.0/24 & 192.168.1/24

I have netbeui and tcp/ip installed on machines inside LAN (windows based)
Do I need to setup each LAN on the same subnet???
are lmhost files needed??

Thanks guys
